Returning a Valentine Card

KissThe cross was primarily a place of God's love. There, Jesus Christ love for all people shone forth. Jesus beckoned all men and women, every boy and girl to the transforming and regenerating love of Jesus himself. In the same way a cross at the end of an email or letter declared the sender's love.✞

Cryptogram of God's Love

Valentine CardOn my Valentine cards as a teenager, I marked little encoded messages like S.W.A.L.K. meaning "Sealed With A Loving Kiss" and H.O.L.L.A.N.D. "Hope Our Love Lasts And Never Dies!" These were a type of "cryptograms." In the same way the cross of Jesus was a cryptogram of Jesus' love, a kiss blown across the ages.✞

Returning Jesus' Love

Child in a hatBy returning Jesus' love and opening our arms wide to him we became his children. We were told in John 1.12, "Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God." Christianity was based on this kind of life changing encounter with Jesus. It found its perfection in the group of Christians who were united by Christ and became the household Body of Christ. When he touched our lives others will say, "you have kept this good wine till now!"
